Clemson kept its record unblemished with last weekend’s 26 point win over Syracuse at Death Valley. But all Tiger fans who saw the game know that going into the latter minutes of the third quarter, the game was too close for comfort. Syracuse trailed by six and had the football. Then, a scoop and score by Andrew Booth turned the game Clemson’s way and the Tigers pulled away, winning but falling 20 points short of a cover. The Tigers 31 points home favorites this Saturday against an improved Boston College team. The Eagles are 4-2 under first year coach Jeff Hafley, the former Ohio State co-defensive coordinator. Quarterback Phil Jurkovec is second to Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence in the ACC in total offense. He is a very efficient passer and a strong runner. With Notre Dame looming the next week, the Tigers will want to clean up the issues from last week and play a clean game as they go for their 10th straight win over BC.
Earlier this week several Clemson players met with the media to review the Syracuse game and look ahead to BC.
